To prepare for a hassle-free delivery, consider these following points:
- Accessible delivery location
The delivery truck needs adequate space of at least 12ft width and 16ft of height clearance to easily access your location. Additionally, you should have 75ft for a 20ft container or 120ft for a 40ft container. Trucks make wide turns so there should be no fences or obstacles blocking the entrance.
- Check the weather conditions
Weather conditions such as rain or snow can impact delivery. Ensure that the path and container location are dry and firm.
- Solid, level ground
Containers need to be delivered on solid, level ground to ensure the doors will open and close properly.
- Flat delivery site
It is important that the path leading to the delivery site is a level, flat surface as hills and slopes may cause the tilt body truck to get stuck.

How much space is required for delivery?
Containers are typically delivered with a tilt-bed roll off truck. The driver tilts the bed up and the container slowly slides off onto the ground as the driver then pulls out from under the container. For a 20ft long storage container, you will need about 75ft of straight line clearance. For a 40ft long storage container, the truck and trailer will need about 110ft of straight line clearance.
What kind of site preparation is needed?
We will deliver on cement, pavement, asphalt, gravel, grass & dirt, provided the surface is not too soft. However, we strongly recommend that you choose a site that is as level as possible. If the storage container is not level, the container doors may be hard to open and close. The surface area where you place your container should also have adequate drainage to avoid sinking.
